“Glee” Star Cory Monteith Autopsy Results: “Primarily Heroin,” Drug Toxicity and Alcohol


UPDATE: “Glee” star Cory Monteith died of a mixture of heroin, drug toxicity and alcohol according to the Vancouver coroner. Barb McLintock of the British Columbia coroner’s office says in this video “primarily heroin.” Wow. Some rehab. Heroin has to be a result much more severe than anyone expected. And I do wonder how he could have been in that condition for week and no one noticed.



Earlier I told had been told by the coroner’s office that the results of the autopsy would be inconclusive and I went with that. Well, blame it on Canada.
